After a friday night full of rain and cold weather, the day couldn’t have turned out any better for a wedding of my good friends Lisa & Doroteo. The day started early at 7am at the brides home – it never surprises me how much brides need to do for their big day. But nothing a nice hot cup of coffee can’t help out right.
Once we arrived at Betty’s Total Event’s venue, the rest of the day went by so fast it seems, guess that signifies that you were having fun right? The venue itself was amazing, the layout of the space made it seems 10x larger that what it appears from the outside. Tons of beauitul natural light filled the main hall and garden area, perfect for the day’s events.
A big shout out to my 2nd shooter Liz Castro (follow her on IG @liz_pix), who did an amazing job. There is nothing better than having peace of mind knowing your 2nd shooter is more than capable at her job. I look forward to the next few weddings that will be working together in.
All-in-all the bride and groom were one of those perfect couples that allowed you the freedom to be creative and just enjoyed the ride. They say you shouldn’t work with friends, but I shoot a lot of friend’s weddings and for me it’s been a true blessing to do so. To the bride and groom, may your new journey be filled with an over abundance of peace, joy and love. Enjoy the photos!
